Adductor Stretch

The adductor stretch is done while standing.

  • Stretch one leg out to the side, keeping your other leg under your torso.

  • Bend the knee underneath your torso to stretch the muscles of the inner thigh of the opposite leg.

  • Your outstretched leg should have a straight knee, and you should feel the stretch on the inner thigh.
